SNF Webinar on Chefs in Schools

The School Nutrition Foundation (SNF) in partnership with the National Dairy Council will be hosting a webinar entitled “Chefs in Schools: Increasing Participation and Gaining Renewed Excitement around your School Meal Program”. The webinar will be held on Wednesday, December 14th at 2:00pm EST and will last approximately 75 minutes.

Hear from our panel who will discuss how to work with chefs to enhance your child nutrition (CN) program in the areas of recipe/menu development; food education; culinary skills; and how to successfully market your CN program to stakeholders (students, parents, school administrators, and the community.) Chefs Kern Halls, from Orange County Public Schools, and Tom French, from the Experience Food Project, will discuss their experiences.

The objectives of this webinar are for participants to:

  • learn the necessary steps to bring a chef into a school
  • learn how to manage expectations between the director, food service staff and the chef
  • gain an understanding of how to effectively utilize a chef’s expertise to enhance a child nutrition program in the areas of recipe/menu development; food education; culinary skills; and marketing
  • learn how Fuel Up To Play 60 (FUTP60) and other resources can provide a framework for reaching out to students and engaging them around the food they eat

Mark Your Calendars for ANC 2012

Now is the time to mark your calendar for July 15-18, 2012. The year’s ANC theme is “Explore New Horizons,” and the ‘Mile High City’ of Denver will be our backdrop for a conference that will help you discover just how to launch your career to new heights. Over the course of four days you will discover 90+ education sessions, 300+ exhibit booths, 3 general sessions and numerous events, all designed to provide you with the information you need to meet new challenges and seize new opportunities.

While winter is just getting its frosty grip around much of the country, SNA has some exciting news about this summer’s conference that's sure to warm up your day! First there was Patti LaBelle, then Frankie Valli and Kool & The Gang, and this past July it was Alan Jackson… but this coming July, to help bring your ANC experience to a close, SNA will be bringing you a ‘Fun, Fun, Fun’ evening with the American pop group sensation, The Beach Boys!

Break out the sunglasses and Hawaiian shirts; when this surf-rock band takes the stage it’s more than just a feel-good performance, it’s a time machine that will take you back to a magical time in music history.
For 50 years, The Beach Boys have epitomized the laid-back spirit of the summer, and their sun-kissed, classic songs have become pieces of Americana. Since breaking onto the music scene with their first hit, “Surfin’” in 1961, the band has had a continuous string of chart-topping hits that have spanned nearly forty years, including: “California Girls,” “I Get Around,” “Surfin’ USA,” “Fun, Fun, Fun,” “Surfer Girl,” “Help Me Rhonda,” “Barbara Ann,” “Don’t Worry Baby,” “Wouldn’t It Be Nice,” “Kokomo” and “Good Vibrations.”

The ANC Final Event featuring The Beach Boys will take place on Wednesday, July 18, 2012, at the Colorado Convention Center. Stay tuned to the ANC website,, for the most up-to-date conference details. Registration is currently scheduled to open in late January.
